“Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your petitions to God” – Phil 4:6 (NIV)
In times when jobs are no longer certain and incomes strained, from the effect of the corona virus pandemic, who cannot fail to be anxious. A world where one had got used to a particular pattern of life, has been turned upside down.
Anxiety is that state of worrying that comes when one is not assured of what is to happen. The one with children in school is anxious where the fees are going to come from. Some times it can even mean worrying where the next meal is going to come from.
But through the word of God we have comfort that where we give ourselves it is all in vain. As it has been written, “But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19).
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that I let no worry and anxiety take away the joy of knowing that you will meet all my needs!
